ve just finished a thought provoking little book just finished a thought provoking little book Alan C Bradley and William A S Sarjeant entitled Ms Holmes of Baker Street The Truth About Sherlock Their thesis is of course summed up in the work s title Sherlock Holmes was a womanAt first glance this seems like a ludicrous idea if not positively eretical Yet the authors support their claim with uote after uote and incident after incident taken from the Holmes canon instances which taken individually are insufficient to prove the authors case but which *In The Aggregate Do Perhaps Appear To *the aggregate do perhaps appear to a female in disguise Most telling to my mind are Holmes s periodic indisposition and tendency to take to is The Jane Austen Project her bed periodic being the operative word Too there is Irene Adler s emphasis on the masculine appellation when disguised as a boy she brushes past Holmes in front ofis apartments with a uiet Good night Mister Sherlock Holmes Moriarty in Dynamite Doc or Christmas Dad? his turn threatens not to kill Holmes but to destroyim something Moriarty would Industrial Applications of Biopolymers and Their Environmental Impact have been able to do with easead Retraite sur le Cantique des Cantiques: Commentaires bibliques (Spiritualité) (French Edition) he penetrated Sherlock s disguiseThe authors like most Sherlockians treat the Conan Doyle stories as fact Working within the canon they believe that even Watson was unaware of Holmes s femininity for many years There is no suggestion that Conan Doyleimself ever intended to place Holmes s gender in doubtTheir premise is of course an intriguing and amusing or infuriating one depending on the strength of the reader s own perception of Holmes Their argument is slightly marred by the fact that the authors Blood Sorcery (Shadows of Magic, having first conceived of the idea then looked exhaustively for evidence in support of their thesis without examining in much detail the evidence to the contrary the mark of an enthusiast rather than a truly impartial investigator However I thoroughly enjoyed playing the game temporarily suspending my own concept of Holmes in favor of the authors as I read In the endowever what keeps me from embracing their conclusion wholeheartedly is my own partiality Holmes to me is not merely the detective of the Conan Doyle stories but the much complex The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew human and admirable man in Laurie R King s Mary Russell series a series and a Holmes whichave become real to me than the Conan Doyle canon ever didETA 4222019 There are now at least two genderbent Sherlock Holmes pastiches available Sherry Thomas s Lady Sherlock series and Claire O Dell s Janet Watson Chronicles Both are worth readingReview originally published on 4152010 at The Bookwyrm s Hoard So obviously I read this for any bits I could tease out that Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru had anything to do with Holmes and Watson being like totally in love with each other like fer serious And that is basically the entire book Well not counting the parts about Holmes s periods pregnancies and menopause which read like the authorsad no idea what they were talking about btw Just the same this could be the beginnings of a really really awesome Sherlock Holmes pastiche Actually with an idea as intriguing as this it should be a pastiche I want the adventures of Ms Sherlock Holme. R Arthur Conan Doyle uncovered the surprising truth about Sherlock Holmes and the dust is yet to settle The University of Alberta Press is pleased to present the first Canadian edition of Ms Holmes of Baker Street with a new Introduction by Barbara Roden Women are naturally secretive and they like to do their own secreting Sherlock Holmes A Scandal in Bohemia We know the methodsthe game is afo. S which apparently is not obvious in every case Again not all cases are included only the controversial ones and only parts of the story uoted those relevant to making the pointWhat made me wonder overall is that there are people out there willing to delve in depth into trying to figure out what makes a fictional character tick a fact that included in the analysis
"right from the "from the I can understand wanting to analyse and research facts about people who ave actually lived although I will admit that it almost feels as if Sherlock Holmes as been an actual uman *Being And Having Lived *and aving lived 221B Baker Street in LondonIn any event I am glad I read the book and I did enjoy spending time with Ms Sherlock Holmes finding the thesis and analysis appealing even compelling as well as the references to life in the 19th century particularly where women were concerned A valiant effort indeed I started reading this because I thought it would be an interesting take on one of my favourite characters in popular literature I found myself less than impressed While the authors try to assure at the beginning of the book that their ideas may seem sexist from a modern perspective but are only in time with the time period in which the works of ACD are published most of it just comes across as blatant sexism ie feminine moods supposed jealousy over other women such as Mary Morstan Watson irregular eating as a diagnostic trait of women and including noticing unshaven spots on men s faces as something only women would notice As well many of their arguments amount to Holmes depressive moods as evidence of menstruation a lone trip to France being a guise for Holmes giving birth to an illegitimate child and Holmes On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS having romantic feelings for Watson With regards to menstruation while depressive moods are uite common they are not a diagnostic tool Many cisgender men experience depressive moods and to use these as a tool to claim a character is biologically female is irresponsible As for the illegitimate child in France this is purely a matter of speculation with no evidence to support the claim In fact logic and Occam s Razor seem to suggest the opposite Surely Watson who at this point the authors assure is unaware of Holmes condition of being a woman wouldave noticed A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) his tall and thin friend getting rounder around the middle A medical man would certainlyave noticed something like this As for the father of this supposed child the authors simply say we don t know who that is and ignore that point entirely This book reads like two people who see the relationship of Holmes and Watson as one of a romantic nature but do not want to see them in a I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad homosexual light Therefore they find supposed evidence of Sherlock being a woman to support their ship aseterosexual While these characters are open to interpretation and Holmes certainly could be read as a woman Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children hidinger true gender to find a place for erself in a man s world or even as a transgender man although the books does not seem to support this view basing arguments in sexism under the guise of being the truth is less than tactfultl dr This book is purely speculative which while going deep into text does not do an effective job at analyzing or translating subtext I love most things by Alan Bradley so this is no differentNot as well read on Conan Doyle to agree or. Part as a masterful sleuth are rather surprising the impression of a woman may be valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner Sherlock Holmes The Man with the Twisted Lip A firestorm of controversy met the original publication of Ms Holmes of Baker Street The Truth About Sherlock Authors C Alan Bradley and William AS Sarjeant in their methodical investigation of the literature of Si.
